A quick thinking and properly trained school nurse saved a child’s life at Highlands Elementary in Concord on Monday morning.
At about 10am, a young student passed out and was not breathing, according to ConFire Dispatchers. The school’s nurse performed CPR on the student, who then started breathing again by the time paramedics and firefighters arrived on scene, ConFire said.
“Training made a difference in the lives of our students today and we are grateful she was there”, Mt. Diablo Unified School District Superintendent Dr. Nellie Meyer said.
Although it hasn’t been confirmed, we’re hearing the child was talking when he/she was brought to the hospital by the ambulance.
The life-saving nurse says she was just doing her job, and asked that we keep her name private, so we’ll honor her request.
Thank you to the nurse for saving the child’s life, and making a difference in the World!
